    Notes For The Newbs - A Trip Down Memory Lane

    These were some great posts to extend the new guys back in the day...I think it was circa 2007 or so. bobbythekidd (a legend) on AGS compiled this listing off of an old welcome aboard thread. Enjoy and if you feel like it make a new post and maybe we start an updated list that works along the lines of the humor shared amongst the fans in this one.




    From the thread welcoming mountain_man.

    1. Montana doesn't like Montana State

    2. San Diego is overrated

    3. NDSU should be #1 and got jobbed not being in the playoffs, in the minds of most

    posters not from NDSU

    4. A player from Cal-Poly will win the Buchanan

    spelunker64

    5a.You left off the fact that you are considered a Homer is you think your team has a shot

    at winning a game!

    BrevardMountaineer03

    5b. The SoCon "is weak", and if you pick anyone other than App. St., Furman, and

    Wofford, to finish in the top 3 you are absolutely crazy!

    BULLDOG8180

    6. You'll love it when AZGrizFan posts anything since he has the best avatar on the

    board.

    Cobblestone

    7. Don't get involved in the GSU/BVG debate. No matter what you post, a GSU fan will

    promptly tell you your an idiot and lack the necessary information.

    8. It'll take a while, but you will come to understand every word from Mr. Chicken.

    9. San Diego would've beat Ohio State this year.

    10. App State is "over-rated"

    11. Use the correct terminology when referring to FCS. Ralph knows where you live.

    12. Refer all sexual/moral questions to Cap'n Cat in the longue, he's our AGS resident

    Dear Abby.

    13. Don't ever post in Crapsville before the season is officially over for ASU. If you've

    won the NC, don't post still because you'll jinx it for next year.

    14. CatfishCCU is of unknown sexual orientation and very well might also be known as

    AppGuy.

    15. The Furman posters on this board are generally pretty cool, do not confuse them with

    their purple companions on the UFFP.

    16. Don't talk too much smack about WCU...their diehards are already probably

    contemplating suicide as it is.

    17. We'll never live down "hot, hot, hot." Before every big game, expect our opposing

    team to bring it up like nobody has ever seen if before. Yes, we've explained that it wasn't

    meant for release or to be a recruitment video. No, they don't listen.

    18. Montana cannot lose at Wa-Griz, and don't let anybody tell you otherwise.

    19. Don't get in the middle of a D1B/Cap'n Cat/UNH Wildcats vs. Baldy/AZGrizFan

    political battle unless you have approximately 36-48 continuous hours available to argue

    over pointless details.

    20. If a team starts unexpectedly having a great season, expect their posters to multiply

    1000x over (*ahem* San Diego).

    21. Please don't criticize another poster for their lack of spelling. Sometimes you just

    want to get you point across, not turn in a freakin' spellproofed essay.

    22. Cap'n Cat bribes the girls in his pictures to appear with him, don't let him tell you

    otherwise.

    23. Anybody on here with over 3,000 posts officially has no life (I'm getting close, I

    know).

    24. IGO4UNI is ALWAYS drinking, feel no obligation to crack one open just to post on

    his drinking threads, another opportunity shall come usually within 12-14 hours.

    25. Don't tell Cap'n Cat you live near some good fishing spots unless your sure you're

    cool with a HUGE dude crashing on your couch for a few days/months.

    26. Don't be afraid to introduce yourself to fellow AGS'ers at a tailgate. Although perhaps

    somewhat awkward at first, we're all usually hammered anyway.

    27. App fans are despicable, vile pieces of trash to all opposing teams' fans following

    their visit and loss at KBS. Accept this as the price of success.

    28. Dave Coulson is a through-and-through App homer. Don't let his extensive

    knowledge of all FCS teams and usually correct predictions fool you.

    29. D1B did NOT in fact play for Liberty University as he is actually the anti-Christ.

    30. Thou shalt be liked more around AGS if you change your avatar to a pic of a smokin'

    hot chick.

    31. Prognosticating and arguing about who's gonna win on AGS is to many more fun

    than the actual game.

    32. If thou talketh smack and thou team loseth, taketh not a few weeks off AGS in hopes

    that we'll forget. Cometh back over and eat thou crow. We have long memories, anyway.

    33. Honestly, the east-coast-bias thing is just stupid.

    34. Thou shalt not post naked pictures on the bikini thread.

    35. Arguing about whether or not is colder in one FCS city versus another and what sort

    of advantage that gives is stupid, do not partake.

    36. If an AGS fans' team is losing, chances are great it's the fault of the playcalling and

    coaching. If they ran the team, things would be going a lot better.

    Re: Notes For The Newbs - A Trip Down Memory Lane

    Also of a similar construct was a post from AZGrizfan (another legend form the past) that had some other "things I've learned" type of intent.

    Since I’m sure most of youse guys never figured me for makin’it this far, as I approach the five figure milestone of 10,000 posts I’d like to take this time to reflect on a few of

    the things I’ve learned in the time I’ve spent here on AGS:

    1) Grizo is The Man. And one day I shall party at his tailgate.

    2) No matter what name SyntaxError posts under, any opinion that differs from his is simply ignorant, unreasoned, uneducated smack.

    3) Baldy…….is…And one day, I shall party at his house.

    4) The GPI is a joke….in fact, I’ve yet to see a computer-based model that comes anywhere near being accurate.

    5) Regionalization sucks. Period. The 11/23/07 UD/DSU game is living proof of that.

    6) Cap’n Cat is king. Which, I think, is better than being a Cap’n.

    7) There are several voices of reason on this board, including but not limited to: 89Hen, Ivytalk, Baldy, Grizo, CSUBUCDAD, HLecter, blukeys, Blueballs, Seattlegriz, aggie6thman, Gil Dobie, Mountaineer#96, bobbythekidd, and moi. The rest of you are questionable. Some of you (Tod, SyntaxError, UNHWildcats to name a few) are downright looney and should just stay OUT of the political forums altogether….

    8) GannonFan may be the smartest guy on the planet---except in the trivia game.

    9) The playoff committee needs to go back to seeding all 16 teams. Immediately.

    10) The MEAC needs to lose their AQ status. Immediately.

    11) They need to break up the CAA into two different conferences---or make them play ALL conference mates and eliminate OOC games.

    12) The Big Sky and GWFC need to merge---really.

    13) Cleets never made a serious post in his life. Even HE doesn’t take himself seriously.

    14) The Big Sky Conference is Montana and everybody else.

    15) The sucky teams in the Eastern conferences are WAAAY better than the sucky teams in the Western conferences.

    16) Western Carolina, URI and and Indiana State would all finish no worse than 2nd in the Big Fluffy Sky.

    17) NDSU would finish first in the Big 10.

    18) ASU would beat Michigan 9 out of 10 times if they played that many.

    19) Fishnet stockings = Porn….apparently….in some circles.

    20) Mrklean LIKES TO TALK IN ALL CAPS!!!!!!!!!!!! AND HE USES A LOT OF EXCLAIMATION POINTS TO GET HIS POINT ACROSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    21) Montana’s football team is peopled with criminals and miscreants.

    22) OB55 may have the greatest life of anyone on this board.

    23) Dbackjon is a gay, extremely liberal Lumberjacks fan. I’m a straight, moderately conservative Grizzlies fan. Other than that, we have a lot in common. I’ve met him. Trust me on this.

    24) The Bikini Thread is the greatest thread ever invented. And that is precisely WHY the powers that be will never let it reappear on these pages.

    25) Blueballs…….yes.

    and for extra credit, I've learned that my wife is the supreme knowledgeable one in "all things Griz related".....I shall never question her again.

    And there you have it. 10,000 posts. Most were boring little one-liners, but I've managed to accumulate almost 9,000 rep points, 4 warnings, 5 strikes and 1 10 day ban. Not bad, but I feel I'm slipping. As the official AGS Troublemaker, it's my duty to "stir the pot", so to speak. I shall endeavor in the next 10,000 to to a better job of living up to that lofty moniker.

    Peace to all, and a heartfelt thanks to the BOD, Mods, and administration that provides this place for us all to gather and discuss the myriad of things we discuss.....and sometimes football.

    Re: Notes For The Newbs - A Trip Down Memory Lane

    For the last ten years, the top of the FBS/1A was 30 seconds away from breaking away from the bottom of the FBS/1A and creating their own divison. At that point, what's left of the FBS/1A was going to merge with the top of the FCS/1AA and create a new subdivison in NCAA D1.

    Strangely enough, despite every single conference move, television deal, act of God, city council election, and dog fart over the last decade being yet another sign that it was imminent, it has never happened.

    In ten more years, it will still be 30 seconds away.

    Re: Notes For The Newbs - A Trip Down Memory Lane

    These two posts were really throwbacks to years past... I really miss the good old days, back when AGS was busier... and not overrun with the fans of newer FCS teams just as it is today...
    Ivy League Football: Since the latter half of the 20th century, slowly self-destructing to become irrelevant in the scene that they used to dominate, not too many fans among the younger generations, rusting their potentials in the process.
    Before, I liked a lot about Harvard football. Now, not so much. They are the main perpetrators of why Ivy League football has lost its popularity and it may never go back to what it used to be.
